“It’s like all my life everyone’s told me, ‘You’re a shoe! You’re a shoe! You’re a shoe!’ Well, what if I don’t want to be a shoe? What if I wanna be a purse or a hat? No I don’t want you to buy me a hat, I’m saying I am a hat. It’s a metaphor Daddy!” —Rachel Green (via tuffghostevan)

Getting happy.” —Stephen King (via 500daysofkissingmypillow) (via quote-book) (via padfootly) (via givingupthegun)
